Haitian Graves

I have been sorely neglecting this blog of late.  As an excuse, I do have rather a lot going on. And it's summer, so when I haven't been writing or doing any of the other varied chores associated with the writer's life, I've been outside.

But now, it's time for a new book announcement.  Haitian Graves, my new novella for the Rapid Reads line of Orca Books will be released on August 25th.

This is the second Ray Robertson book.  The first, 2014's Juba Good, saw Sergeant Ray Robertson of the RCMP working with the UN in South Sudan. If you recall I was lucky enough to spend some time in South Sudan in 2011 and 2013, and while I was there I met with some RCMP officers.

Since then the security situation in South Sudan has deteriorated and when Orca wanted another Ray Robertson book, I didn't think I could set one there.  But I just happened to be going to Haiti, so I took Ray along.

Here's some pictures of my trip that inspired some of the scenes in the book.
